What MyLOL does to protect the safety of its members
The safety of the members on this site is something that is being improved on in each update that is made. Below is a list of the things we do to ensure your safety.
Suspicious Keyword Detection
Our private messaging system is built to detect a huge range of suspicious sexually orientated keywords, including dozens of slang versions of each word. Although this system logs every private message that is sent, ones with these suspicious keywords that are detected are put into a reviewing system whereby our moderators sift through the messages to see if any users are trying to engage in any illegal or inappropriate activity.
Our administrators and moderators monitor each and every new photo that gets uploaded to MyLOL to ensure that none of them contain any nudity, racist or offensive content.
Users have the option to report people that are may be acting in an abusing or sexually explicit manner. Once a user is reported, the case is then followed up by one of the administrators with both of the users to determine what the best solution is. If the reported user fails to comply with the rules, he or she will be banned or deleted from the site.
Throughout the site, users have the option to block communication from another user that they find are being annoying or abusive. Users then have the option to set reasons why they have blocked, and may also remove blocks on users in future if they wish.
Moderated Chat Room
All channels in the chat room have assigned real moderators, along with the help of chat robots that will kick and or ban users if they swear or are being a nuisance to other users. Spammers are also kicked immediately.
Users can get directly in contact with MyLOL administrators through the contact form at the bottom of the site. This is used to discuss more series issues.
